I think having the epi with me has actually made me feel more paranoid! It puts me in a mindset of being scared of "what-ifs" that I can't control whereas most of my friends don't think about allergens lurking everywhere. It's not even her allergens that I'm paranoid about since I know about them, but rather things like bees that I doubt she is even allergic to.

Carrying an epi for no real reason is probably overkill, but maybe carrying a few chewable or fastmelt benedryl in a purse would be a good compromise.
Yeah that's what I was thinking after reading this thread. I never even knew that until reading!
